Yeshivat Kadimah plans scholarship gala at Laumeier’s new Aronson Center

Yeshivat Kadimah High School will hold its third annual scholarship gala at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, March 5 at the new Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center at Laumeier Sculpture Park.

The center is a tribute to the memory of Adam Aronson, a founding member of Laumeier and an individual who was extremely involved with the St. Louis Jewish community. A successful businessman and philanthropist, Aronson served on the Jewish Light Board of Trustees, was committed to education and the arts and was an exemplary mentor to many in the community. 

Yeshivat Kadimah is a Modern Orthodox, college-prep high school established in June 2013. 

The gala will welcome the school’s first principal, Rabbi Naftali Rothstein, from Israel. Guests will also meet school faculty and engage with students.
